ArtiSense

ArtiSense is a social enterprise that bridges the gap between art and connoisseur. By putting the focus directly on the artist we allow the consumer to connect with their purchase in a unique and engaging way.

Artist profiles provide insight into the motivation behind each creation and demonstrate the passion inherent to each piece.

Buyer profiles will determine the true taste of the connoisseur through a proprietary algorithm that helps define the users taste and then serves up art consistent with the desires of the user.

Socially, a portion of proceeds from the transactions will be allocated to a ‘kickstarter’ type fund that will be used to fund artists projects that are beyond their means to initiate. These projects will be voted on through the site’s community and the winning artists will be provided funding to begin their work.
